    Over torquing plugs strips the head threads. Cracked sparkplugs could be from excessive heat or improper removal techniques. Or they got dropped.

    Alright so leak down passes besides one. #4 is 10%. Cold motor. By the time we got to it it got cold. So I'm going to try it again during the week. Would a hot motor make a difference. I believe I hear it on intake valve. No codes show up. And compression pass.
